Tim Burton to direct 'Dark Shadows'

Tim Burton has reportedly been confirmed as the director of Dark Shadows, the rights of which are held by Johnny Depp's Infinitum-Nihil shingle. No official confirmation has been made, but Depp has held the rights since last year, and a big-screen remake has been cooking over at Warner Bros.

For those of you that don't know - Dark Shadows was a supernatural television show in the 60's (over 1200 episodes!!) that had a fairly successful reboot in the early 90's. It is described as, "A gothic-horror tale centering on the life of vampire Barnabas Collins and his run-ins with various monsters, witches, werewolves and ghosts."

Word is that Depp is interested in the role of Barnabas Collins, but again, nothing has been confirmed.

Are you ready to see Burton and Depp tackle yet another pale, dark, gothic movie? They are always good, but to tell the truth, they might be getting kind of old. I'll still be there if this comes to truth.
